Very difficult conditions here in Treviso with temperatures of 32 degrees. It was so hot last Saturday against Scotland U20s the team went through 14 cases of water. To put that into context there’s 24 bottles in a case!

Wales U20s have some extra help in preparation for this tournament from none other than Scarlets, Wales, and British & Irish Lions star Leigh Halfpenny.

Former Scarlets and Wales openside James Davies presented the matchday jerseys to new caps Ben Williams, Iestyn Hopkins, and Rhodri Lewis.
